Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham set out his strategy to tackle the homelessness and rough sleeping crisis at this keynote Fabian Society speech.
DANIEL SLEAT: Since 2010 the scope and scale of homelessness has steadily increased. It is time to demand the government ends this tragedy, once and for all
LOUISA MCGEEHAN: Child poverty is not inevitable. To prevent it, a first priority for government must be reinvesting in children.
RUTH LISTER: Our social security system gets the balance wrong between means-testing, universalism and contribution. Could basic income provide a way forward?
CHRISTOPHER BROOKS AND SALLY WEST: Pensioner poverty levels have started to rise. Our social security system and other areas of public policy need urgent reform.
CLAIRE AINSLEY: To combat declining public support for social security, our system must be designed in a way that recognises that we all have a stake in its future.
